It is time for another foray into the world of Flash Fiction. This week, Charli from the Carrot Ranch has given us this image and five a day to use, and here are the rules:
November 23, 2017, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about Five a Day. It does not have to be five servings of fruits and vegetables. What is needed five times a day? Have fun with what pops to mind for the prompt.
Respond by November 28, 2017, to be included in the compilation (published November 29). Rules are here. All writers are welcome!
“Eat your vegetables you two. Connie, you’ve hardly touched those sprouts.”
“But Mum, you know I hate them, anyway, they make you blow off!”
To reiterate her point, Mark her brother let out a loud PARP, and both children giggled.
“MARK!” That is enough of that, leave the table at once!”
“Pooh, that stinks, Mum I can’t eat any more now, Mark has put me off.”
Jenny sighed, the pungent aroma wafted over her; some Christmas dinner this was turning out to be.
Pouring herself a fifth glass of wine, she braced herself for the rest of the day.
I don’t know why my mind went in this direction!
Oh Lordy! Lol!!!
HA! I don’t know where that came from, as I don’t even drink!! 🙂
Funny and pretty realistic take, sis ?
Thanks so much, Sis. As usual, it ended up being silly! 🙂
I don’t mind it …lol!
Hysterical! I happen to love those little green balls of death (as a dear friend of mine calls them) and as I do not drink either, I’d have to load up on brussels and blast everyone with some righteous tooting! 🙂
HAHA! You could toot some Christmas songs! 🙂 ???
Hee hee, Judy. I hate Brussels sprouts too.
They are a little better if cooked with bacon! 🙂
Well, I love brussel sprouts and they are of course better with bacon. Or maple syrup.
That was a pungent flash.
Sprouts have to be tarted up a bit before I will eat them, that’s for sure! Yes, sorry, it was a bit of a pungent one this week! 🙂
Ha, ha! You cut a funny flash, Judy! These characters come to life and seem vivid. Thankfully we can’t smell them! 😀
Thanks Charli. Yes, thank goodness we can’t! 🙂
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
